Note that this is NOT a Meetup group of ONLY IT professionals. If you are ONLY interested in talking shop with IT programmers and developers, this is NOT the event you are looking for because most attendees may not be IT techs or webmasters. They may own technology businesses, or invest in tech businesses or are people interested in networking with IT professionals to help bridge the digital and cultural divides. The nonprofit sponsor is looking for IT professionals to serve as mentors, coaches or advisory board members.

This Washington DC group is for Web Designer/Developers and mobile apps developers with interest in networking, building online businesses and achieving one's Big Dream. We join together with similar groups which will meet at this same event for more new contacts, better networking, fun and mutual support. RSVP and COME TO THE 3rd Sunday event and EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED! (This event is not limited to IT professionals or web developers.)
These monthly community events provide opportunities to practice being accepting, happy and to develop more community allies for your project and to connect with others interested in similar topics.
A good way to diversify and get to know others better is to contribute some time to volunteer as a community builder and serve on the all volunteer Allies Team. It is the best way to build relationships which may be important for career references or your future ventures. The co-organizers of this group are looking for prospective web developers interested in participation and sharing tasks and revenues on new projects. Some may be invited to serve as "co-founders" at the perfect time. Some of the social entrepreneurial co-sponsors are sharing very valuable expertise and practical experience that have gained through building successful projects. Not only have they shared the best tools, websites, resources that they have used in their successful business, they have saved students so much time, in pointing them in the right direction. Co-organizers hope to work with other web and IT professionals interested in fulfilling their highest aspirations and willing to learn and share personal, IT and web development expertise.
Don't let your past stop you from moving ahead to become ALL you can be as social entrepreneurs/stakeholders as well as web developers. Thanks for your interest in collaborating and helping to build a beautiful community!
Please RSVP for this group and we look forward to see you at these 3rd Sunday 12:30PM to 2:30PM for social and business networking events! (This restaurant will let networkers stay after the program to dinner time for one-on-one conversations.) Invite your friends to meet you here at www.meetup.com/ITprofessionals/
